How big of a area do you cover?

I few years back I reduced my coverage area due to being so busy! I'm now faced with looking at increasing my coverage area again due to being so slow. Right now I only go 75 away from home base. Been thinking of increasing to 100 to 125 miles. What do most of you all do with coverage? How miles do all of you travel out.

My husband covers a 50 mile radius from our house, but that includes three states CT, MA, and RI.

we cover a one hour radius from the shop. if they want a property father away than this they have given extra on the trip charge. I stay away from the western part of the state(ky) because not enough property to service they are to far apart from one another. not sure who you work for or with but I know some areas they are trying to get me to take but it is to far for us you can pm me and maybe I can help good luck

I cover about 60 miles for routine services and repairs

or anything that is an in and out quick job, and about half of that for initial type services. In most businesses you would be able to travel a bit further for the larger job, but this business it different in that respect, at least in my experience. If I get assigned something that doesn't fall into these guidelines, I will go look at it. You never want to pass up a cupcake job just because it's a couple mile too far.

Back in the day I've been 7 to 9 hours one way away to cover remote properties.

I would usually be given a route and trip charges for each.
I always did trip and route planning prior to accepting the route.
Some times I'd have to ask for more trip fees to make motels and expenses work.
I had the coordinators trained on my way when they would call hat in hand.

I made it work, but you can count on the fact that when you travel like that nothing ever works
out exactly as planned!

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

We basically stop at Madisonville. I can't make any money over around Paducah and we gave up Louisville and Lexington years ago because the crews there were difficult to deal with. They are spoiled with so much work close to them that they want a fortune to travel 30 miles.

We are starting to do some more work for a couple of nationals again, but still mostly private.
We don't go more than 35 miles, however with that radius we cover 125 zipcodes.
The county I live in alone has 68 towns and none are more than 30 minutes aways if that.

depends on the direction of travel. furtherest point in our area is about 80 miles from the shop. in the other directions, furthest point could be 30 miles.
